Toilet Review – Gerber Dual Flush Pressure Assisted

My in-laws recently remodeled their lake house and when they were looking at toilets I steered them towards dual flush models.  They wanted a “standard” looking toilet rather than the more modern Toto dual flush toilets I used on my remodel a few years ago.  I have a good relationship with the Gerber rep and he’s told me really good things about their relatively new Gerber pressure assisted dual flush toilet.  That’s the toilet you’ll see me reviewing in the video.  The executive summary is that it’s been a fantastic toilet.  The handle looks like an old school handle rather than the two buttons on top of my Toto toilets.  Pressing down like you’ve always done produces a pressure assisted 1.1 gallon flush that works for 99% of what you’ll need to flush.  If you lift up on the handle it’ll go a full 1.6 gallons.  I really think this would have worked perfectly as a single flush 1.1 gallon tank but I’m betting they include the higher flush as mental insurance for people unsure about buying a dual flush toilet.  This is a really powerful flush at 1.1 gallons.  I highly recommend this for anyone wanting a more traditional toilet but wanting to save water overall.  Great product.  -Matt Risinger

  • Matt – what a timely post! Just yesterday my husband and I were talking about trying to find a dual-flush toilet that was only 14.5″ high and Gerber has them. Can you tell us which model your in-law have? Gerber seems to have numerous dual-flush models.
    thanks!

  • @Brooke: I love to hear my blog is helpful! I’m 90% certain this is the “Ultra Dual Flush” model. They have several flavors of that model with different bowls so I’m not certain if this is elongated or not? I think you’ll really like this toilet. -Matt

    Matt, have you ever had a situation where the mechanism leaks? When I called Gerber, they were somewhat in disbelief as was the plumbing supply store where I bought the toilet. My Gerber is only 3 years old.
